Hello, bonjour to all Canadian fans reading this! The lovely Ms. Kiz took the picture above and I thought you might want to know the story behind it. 🙂 In the Westbury VIP last night, Refnaf and I asked David if he’d mind holding our little sign for the picture taking.
In typical thoughtful David fashion, he read it carefully before agreeing and then we he realized what it said, and where we’d come from, he said “Awww, sure, thanks for coming!”
After they took the picture, Refnaf told David we’d love for him to come back to Canada for a show someday and he said he really wants to, then he said, “Tell everyone there hello from me.”
So this is me sending you all a big David hello and Merry Christmas! Fa-la-la-la, indeed.
It was a perfect moment up until the end when I shook his hand and smiled the spazziest smile ever. I’m sure he thought I was high on the sharpie ink that filled the room after he signed posters. sigh.
Other than my spazzfest, awesome awesome VIP… he left then popped back in just to sing an acappella bit of MKOP. Blew us all away. THIS is why we are his fans, wow.
Sorry, no pics or vids yet (from me, anyway, lol) … I just needed to give you my post-show first impressions of my very first 1st show of a tour.
This was the first time when I didn’t know what songs were coming or what surprises were in store. And as you’ve probably heard already there were a LOT!
I’ll add more later when I’ve had time to process it all, but let me just say there was an abundance of love in that venue tonight that started this tour off right. Standing O’s after practically every song.
And that aMAZing Falalalala song was one of the highlights for me… the kids, the dancing, the fact that the poem intro mentioned “angels in the snow” 🙂 🙂 🙂 …. it was perfect!
The jazzy “This is Christmas” was incredible too… and it will just get better and more soulful and jazztastic as the tour goes on, I just know it.
And “Little Drummer Boy” … who the heck was that and what did you do with our David Archuleta???? When David held those drumsticks in the air there was an audible gasp, no one really knew where the heck it was all going.
Then he started leaping around and pounding on the drum like a man possessed … all I could think of was “Does that drum represent Jive?” 😆 Man, he was in the ZONE.
David was rock-star amazing from beginning to end… and those boots in the first set????? …. I am not one to scream out things at concerts but I was perilously close to howling “DAAAAAVID, I LOVE YOUR BOOOOOTS!!!!!”
… more to come!
P.S. And for the record, SAz had this red snowflake background before David used it for his tour backdrop! 😆 😆 😆
